Which is of course a pretty trivial utility function to write. But I
understand your point - these "trivial helpers" add up over time into
a bit of a burden. But fixing that (if anyone feels it's worth doing
so) can be handled many ways, and changing the semantics of None is
far from the simplest or most obvious.
